"I actually had this idea to do a remake of The Magnificent Seven. I wanted to set it in a world where sexual roles were inexplicably reversed... women were cowhands while men waited tables and hung out the wash. I suggested that we call our principals, seven female gunfighters, 'The Magnificent Fourteen.' I was driven out of the Polo Lounge by activists who threw bottles of Evian and shouted things like 'You sexist bastard!' Luckily, no one in Hollywood recognized my face, so I've been able to return, which I have frequently done, to pitch less controversial concepts."
